GET GLOWY: THE BEST HIGHLIGHTERS

Posted by 12.09.16

Accentuating facial contours with highlighting products was a thing long before the Kardashians made it part of our cosmetic lexicon. In the days since different iterations such as contouring (combining lighter and darker shades to enhance facial features) and strobing (essentially extreme highlighting) have been adopted by amateurs.

But if you’re not a pro, take heed… Less is more when it comes to this makeup trend, unless you want to look like a disco ball. The key to looking naturally radiant is light-handed application on spots that are naturally hit with light first (i.e. cheekbones, brow bones, down the center of the nose and just above the lips) since it’s easier to add a bit

GRAB AND GO: PRETTY POUCHES TO STORE YOU MAKEUP ESSENTIALS

True Confession. For years I stored my beauty products in plastic ziplock bags. I liked the practicality of it. The price was more than right, I could see everything in one fell swoop without having to go digging through an opaque one to find what I wanted, and if the bag got dirty or stained there was always an easy replacement on standby right in the kitchen drawer. I kept a large one in my bathroom vanity with everything I used daily and I also kept a smaller one in my handbag filled with the items I’d need for touchups throughout the day. Then…I spotted the most beautiful makeup bag in a local boutique. Since that purchase, I haven’t gone back to plastic bags and I have no intention

LIP OILS: THE ANSWER TO DRY, DEHYDRATED LIPS

Baby, it’s cold outside, and you know what that means. A higher probability of dry chapped lips. When the outdoor temperature drops and becomes more arid, and the indoor heat is turned to high, the air dries out and grabs moisture from wherever it can, your lips included! Since your lips are only covered by a very thin layer of skin, have virtually no oil glands and have a high rate of water loss, you need to take extra care of them, especially during the dryer months of the year. Lip oils are a great way to do just that.

Don’t get me wrong. I still love my lip balms, but sometimes you need to call in the big guns. And lip oils are all the ammunition you’ll desire. They’re incredibly mois

POST-ELECTION SOLUTIONS FOR STRESS RELIEF

Posted by 12.06.16

Life is full of stress-inducing things and we’re definitely a stressed out nation, but lately I’ve been encountering a lot more freaked-out people than usual. Part of this is due to their day to day experiences like career, marital and family issues but the lead up to election day seemed to put everyone over the edge. Just take a peek at all the social media sites and it’s obvious that there’s lots of animosity, anger, distrust and hopelessness on one side and uncertainty on the other. And though the election is over, many stressed out individuals didn’t lower their cortisol levels the moment the polls closed and all was tallied up.

Whether your candidate won or lost, chances are you’re f
